neighborhoods? how many people in your own neighborhoods are in trouble? can look their kids in the eye and say, honey, it's going to be okay. it's going to be okay. not enough. because the level playing field doesn't exist. >> reporter: mr. vice president, sounds like you have a rationale for running. >> i'll run part of the parade. >> reporter: he really did. he was jogging across the parade route talking to parade goers. some told him he should run and some said he should beat hillary clinton in iowa trying to shore up support there saying she had the policies and tenacity and vision to make her candidacy a successful one. bernie sanders was in new hampshire trying to shore up support there where he was the leader in recent polls. for joe biden, it is a decision he is continuing to mull overme
overme overment. he is keeping a circle of friends and confidantis over whether he will run or not. john and alison. thank you, briana. the cia and another intelligence agency said two e-mails clinton received on her account contained top secret information at the time they were sent. a review was endorsed by a finding by the two agencies inspector general. a finding disputed by the clinton campaign. they said different agencies acquire information in different ways. there is good news for clinton on monday. she picked up the endorsement of iowa's democratic congress member dave loebasck. clinton meantime spent the
holiday weekend pitching votes across the state. >> i watched george w. bush and his republican administration try to reverse everything that had been done. they did a really good job of it. they drove us into a ditch. and they did it because they continued to believe that the only way that anybody should be involved in the economy is to do exactly what you're told by the people on top. the big corporations and get out of the way of trickle down economics. it didn't work before. it can't work again. >> i believe i have the vision, the policies, the skill, the tenacity and determination to get us back on the right track. >> today, clinton is set to propose a new set of campaign finance reform measures. republican candidate carly
fiorina managing to attack hillary clinton and donald trump all at the same time. fiorina says she sometimes feels like the one candidate consistently going after clinton. she wonders why trump is not focusing more on the democratic frontrunner. >> mrs. clinton is the same person who compared republicans to terrorists. i wish mr. trump would throw more heat hillary clinton's way. i feel i'm the only candidate who has been critical of her n consistent consistently. mrs. clinton has lied about benghazi and e-mails and her server. when she revives the war on women, make no mistake, this is her go-to line. meantime, mike huckabee in kentucky today. he plans to lead a rally in support of county clerk kim davis. she is sitting in jail for contempt of court for the
refusing to issue the marriage licenses to same-sex couples. today is the first day her motion could be heard. for the latest on that, let's turn to jean casarez. >> reporter: john and alison, it is expected today that mike huckabee, presidential contender, is actually going to kentucky not only to lead a rally for kim davis outside of the jail, where she still sits, but go inside and talk with her. her attorney confirmed that mike huckabee called kim davis on her cell phone and spoke with her last week. now this is all the while kim davis tells her attorney and also her husband that she is comfortable in jail because h her beliefs are on strong. her attorneys filed a petition asking for emergency relief. basically that she be released from jail. technically, they are asking for an injunction against the governor.
they have a suit against the governor because they say he issued absolute directives saying all county clerks must issue same-sex marriage licenses and her with her religious beliefs told her she could not do that. there were no exclusions for her. additionally, in spite of this, the community is rallying around kim davis. many people coming from out of town. her office, at the end of last week, started issuing same-sex marriages. her name is not on it, but she still believes as the elected clerk. it is coming from her. she is endorsing it although the current order from the district court said you are not endorsing it as the county clerk. you are showing the people are who they purport to be. under the law, they have a right to marry. additionally, the order in effect right now says she took
an oath to offer and honor the constitution of the united states, which the supreme court says, allows for same sex unions. we will see what the future holds in kentucky. john. >> jean casarez, thank you. former vice president dick cheney set for a speech this morning. he will discuss what he believes the consequences of the iranian agreement. congress votes on the measure next week. cheney says arming and funding iran while simultaneously providing them a path to a nuclear arsenal is not a pathway to peace. it is not the only alternative to war. dick cheney says it is madness. france could launch air strikes against isis targets in syria. until now, they have taken part in attacks in iraq. but french president francois

europe is reaching its tipping point this morning. thousands pouring into countries. many forced to wait for days for water. thousands of clashes breaking out along serbia. france announces it will take in 24,000 asylum seekers in the next two years. british agreeing to take 20,000 more. germany setting aside 6 billion
total to handle the inflectifli. cnn is covering the issue like no other. we are starting off with arwa damon at the serbian and hungary border. arwa, you are standing where thousands are waiting in limbo. >> reporter: this is the train track that many of them follow to get from serbia into hungary. they come across either as fairly large groups or smaller people. because it is exhausting to walk the entire way. especially for the children. some prefer to wait on the serbian side for a little bit longer. not entirely sure what exactly will happen when they cross into hungary and you see on this side, the fence that hungary is in the process of building. it has the coils of wire that go along all of its border with
serbia. then you see the cement poles put up. that is going to end up being a solid wall. this is hungary's attempt to try to stem the flow, control the flow of the people coming across its borders. the opponents of the government critical of the effort. in building this kind of wall, hungary is not deal with the problem. not creating a solution. instead, just making the situation worse. this forces people to turn to smugglers who do not have their best interests at heart. these are people who are not going to let the wall stop them. they will try to find a way through. that is how desperate they are to get to western europe. in the group that was passing by earlier, alison, there was a touching moment where a man walked past our camera and touched our heart and said syria in my heart. everyone we have spoken to here
when you ask them what the most difficult thing was other than the fact they are risking their lives and lives of their children, was how much they miss their homeland. that realization that the countries they come from are not countries they can call home or places they can build a future. that is why they make the journey. >> heart breaking to see. the arduous journey. arwa damon, thanks. more than 16,000 migrants have poured into austria since saturday arriving in packed trains and buses. most hoping to make germany their final destination. officials are warning they cannot keep up with the influx. cnn's frederik pleitgen is live in vienna. >> reporter: they are saying they have very little information of how big the influx is going to be. yesterday was supposed to be a slower day here at the vienna
western train station. at the end of the day, it was almost 4,000 people that actually passed through here. what happens is they come here and then there are volunteers who help them out immediately with food and water. people who have been working around the clock to make it as good as possible for the refugees who come here. you just saw the scenes at the border that arwa was describing. many had a difficult journey. many complained the way they were treated in hungary. a different picture in austria. volunteers are doing all they can. however, the authorities are saying it is a massive influx that they are dealing with. germany and austria cannot deal with it alone. they want other european countries to do more. there is a real rift in europe with denmark and hungary. some blaming the germans and austrians for the migrants coming here. they say this entices people to
come here. the germans are saying these people are going to come here any way. the least we can do is help them out. >> fred, you can see the scope of the crisis. our thanks to arwa and fred. crowd rallying behind joe biden. will he enter the race for president? what he is saying now ahead. oh, look. we have a bunch of...
announcer: babies who are talked to from the time they're born are more likely to have a successful future. talking and reading to children in their first years has a huge impact on what they do with the rest of their lives. the fewer words they hear, the greater their chances of dropping out of school and getting into trouble. talk. read. sing. your words have the power to shape their world.
clinton received top secret information on her private e-mail server. a kentucky clerk in jail for refusing gay couples wedding licenses. she files a new appeal and gets some high profile support. welcome back to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm alison kosik. joe biden is signaling he is ready to run. the vice president radiated new energy as he marched in the pittsburgh huge labor day parade and gave a fiery speech at key democrat democratic constituents. we have cnn's brianna keilar there with more. >> reporter: it was vice president joe biden in pittsburgh who really raised eyebrows. he gave a fiery speech to union members with populous undertones. he talked about how community
college should be free and wealthy should be taxed to pay for it. he railed against trust fund babies in what sounded like a stump speech. >> i acknowledge that. i'm mad. i'm angry. how many people in your neighborhoods? how many people in your neighborhoods are in trouble? can look their kids in the eye and say with heart, honey, it's going to be okay. it's going to be okay. not enough. because the level playing field doesn't exist. >> reporter: mr. vice president, sounds like you have a rationale for running. >> i'm run part of this parade. >> reporter: he really did. he was jogging. zig zagging across the parade route. some said he should run. some said he should beat hillary clinton who was in iowa trying to shore up support saying she had the policy and vision to make her candidacy a successful
one. bernie sanders was in new hampshire trying to shore up his support there where he is the leader in recent polls. for joe biden, it's a decision that he is continuing to mull over. he is keeping the council of confidants and long time friends to decide whether he will get in the race. thank you. new developments in the hillary clinton e-mail controversy. the cia and other agencies say two e-mails that clinton received on her personal account contained top secret information at the time they were sent. the new york times has endorsed the findings of the inspectors general disputed by the clinton campaign. they say different agencies acquire different information in different ways.
some other news of hillary clinton on money. she picked up the democratic congress member endorsement. dave loeback. the former secretary spent the holiday weekend pitching voters across iowa. >> i watched george w. bush and his republican administration try to reverse everything that had been done. you know they did a really good job of it, didn't they? they drove us into a ditch. and they did it because they continued to believe that the only way that anybody should be involved in the economy is to do exactly what you're told by the people on top. the big corporations and get out of the way of trickle down economics. it didn't work before and it can't work again. >> i believe i have the vision, the policies, the skill, the tenacity and determination to get us back on the right track.
>> today, the former secretary is set to announce a set of campaign financial disclosures. and republican candidate carly fiorina is managing to attack hillary clinton and donald trump at the same time. fiorina says she sometimes feels like the one candidate consistently going after hillary clinton and she is wondering why trump is not focusing more on the frontrunner. >> mrs. clinton is the same candidate who compared republicans to terrorists. i feel sometimes i'm the only candidate who is consistently been critical of her. the truth is, mrs. clinton had lied as secretary of state about benghazi, about her e-mails, about her server. so when she revives this war on women, make no mistake, she will, this is her go-to line.
>> mike huckabee is in kentucky today. he plans to lead a rally in support of county clerk kim davis in jail for contempt after refusing a federal judge order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. her lawyers have filed an emergency appeal to get her release. let's get the latest on the story from cnn's jean casarez. >> reporter: it expected today that mike huckabee is actually going to kentucky not only to lead a rally for kim davis outside of the jail where she sits, but go inside and talk with her. her attorney confirmed with cnn that mike huckabee called kim davis on her cell phone and spoke with her last week. this is all the while kim davis tells her attorney and her husband that she is comfortable in jail because her beliefs are so strong in this area. contrary to that, her attorneys have filed an emergency petition
with the sixth circuit court of appeals asking for relief. asking she be released from jail. they are asking for an injunction against the governor. they have a suit against the governor because they say he issued directives that all county clerks must issue same-sex marriage licenses and her with her religious beliefs, she could not do that. crowds have had a rally in support of kim davis. many coming from out of town. her office at the end of last week starting issuing same-sex marriage licenses. her deputy clerks did that. her name is not on it. she still believes as the elected clerk it is coming from her. she is in effect endorsing it. although the current order from the district court said you are not endorsing it as the county
clerk. you are showing the people are o they purport to be. under the law, they have a right to marry. additionally, the order in effect says she took an oath to offer and honor the constitution of the united states which the supreme court says allows for same sex unions. we will see what the future holds in kentucky. john, alison. jean casarez, thanks. former vice president dick cheney is set to address the consequences of the iran nuclear deal for the united states and its middle east allies. congress votes on the measure next week. here is a quote from the preview copy. speech. arming and funding iran while providing them a path which to a nuclear arsenal is not an act of peace. it is not, as president obama claims, the only alternative to war. cheney says it's madness. france could launch air
strikes against isis targets in syria. until now, they have taken part in attacks against isis in iraq. french president francois holland says they are planning attacks in syria. britain announced it will conduct the first armed drone strike inside the borders two weeks ago killing three isis operatives. time for an early start on your money. asian markets closed mostly higher, but more signs china's economy is slowing down. new trade figures show imports and exports fell sharply for august. here in the u.s., markets will open again after labor day holiday. we are seeing stock futures higher. a good sign after a roughened to the week. dow and nasdaq and s&p fell 3%. we are keeping an eye on oil prices. falling down 3% this morning. it is just one more big swing in
oil's spiral. just last month, oil plummeted below $38 a barrel for the first time since 2009. low oil prices mean good news for consumers. the national average for a gallon of regular is $2.39 this morning. that is $1 cheaper than this time a year ago. many actually predict $2 gas by december. later today, pope francis expected to announce revisions to the marriage annulment process for catholics. the vatican is not releasing details, but the pope says annulments can be too costly and cumbersome. the washington post has an interesting article. a cardinal says the pope doesn't have the power to change the church doctrine. we now know why the courts cleared amanda knox of murder.

after a complaint. express jet says they value diversity, but cannot comment on personnel matters. heavy rain in the midwest causing flash flooding. let's bring in meteorologist pedram javaheri. >> the severe weather pattern resembles what we saw yesterday across the great lakes. the pattern will bring 2 to 3 inches of rainfall. the national weather service has put flood watches in effect over this region. look at the temperature trend. you don't see this too often. i love this view. it is currently 81 in chicago. that is warmer than the average high for this time of year. i checked in at south beach and miami, temperatures are 79 degrees. how often do you see that in september? not very often. the warm theme across new york
city. 60 consecutive days with the high temperatures exceeding 90 degrees. we will go up to 93 today. we drop back to 87 wednesday afternoon with the cooling trend in the forecast for new york city. guys. pedram, thanks. chaos at the borders in europe. thousands of migrants seeking asylum. this morning, governments are warning they can only take so many in. we have live team coverage as the crisis unfolds next. ooñóokñ.??????ó
new developments in the migrant crisis hitting europe. thousands keep pouring into hungary desperate to reach western europe. clashes with police along serbia. france announced it will take in 24,000 asylum seekers in the next two years. the british will receive 20,000 more over time. germany has set aside nearly $7 billion to hand the influx. we have the story covered across europe. let's go first to arwa damon live at the serbia/hungary border. arwa, you have seen so much suffering the last few days. >> reporter: we really have.
people keep on coming, arriving exhausted. this is the point where they cross from serbia following the train tracks into hungary. you see some of them waiting around here. they are hoping that somehow they will figure out a way to cross without going into the hungarian camps. that is not a likely scenario for them. some families stopping to take a break in the shade. it is quite a trek. this part is three hours and they have another 20 minutes before they get to a holding area where they will pick up buss bus s buses there to take them to the camps. conditions are not exactly ideal. you see the wall there. hungary is in the process of building the wall. that wire they have strung along
the border. this is hungary's effort to contain the flow coming across the borders. critics say this not a solution. rather than this will create potentially an even bigger problem. many arriving here are refugees from the wars in iraq, syria and afghanistan. they made that difficult decision to leave home. a touching moment earlier with a father carrying his girl on his shoulders syria in my heart. they are leaving everything behind because this is their only chance for a future. >> arwa, are people keeping abreast of the mascinations from the countries or are they concerned about getting their next meal or getting to the
border? >> reporter: yeah. they are actually keeping track of it and very closely. they are aware of the various different policies and conflicts that are happening to a certain degree between the position of hungary, austria and germany. they are very aware. currently, germany said they are welcoming them. they are concerned of the treatment in hungary. they know there are meetings taking place. a lot of them asking us a lot of questions about what the latest is. what is the situation. what is facilitated. you get this question, too, of why isn't more being done for us. that's the question we can't really answer at least not adequately. especially given everything they have been through when they arrive to europe. they thought things would be easier. a bit more sympathy and empathy
for the plight and everything that they have been through. yes, they are informed, but they have a lot of questions and uncertainty. >> arwa damon, one of the flash points here. the serbia/hungary border. >> more than 16,000 migrants have arrived in austria on packed trains and buses. government officials in austria are warning they cannot keep up with the influx. cnn's coverage of the crisis continues with correspondent frederik pleitgen live from vienna. fred, listening to arwa talk and migrants are asking why isn't more being done for us? did these countries know the migrants were coming and they did not expect this many? >> reporter: alison, it is the fact there are so many divisions within the european union. in some places, they are receiving a warm welcome. austria is one of them.
in one place. it is different. if you look at hungary, there are remember folks who are very good to the refugees coming through who try to make donations. there have been a lot of criticism of the hungarian government. the situation is different here in austria. these are all refugees walking past me. what happens is they immediately are received by volunteers. mean speaking arabic, farci to help them along. they are receiving food and toys and they are transited to trains that go to germany. the vast majority of them which is the place they want to go. you can really see the civil society here in austria, and germany as well, stepping up with donations with time and compassion to the refugees coming through. again. these governments in berlin and vienna say they cannot do this alone.
other countries need to commit more. if you look at the numbers you were mentioning earlier. 16,000 that went through over the weekend. by now, it will be about 20,000. that is in one weekend. the amount of people going to germany and britain has pledged that number over the course of five years. those are the dimensions that countries like germany are dealing with at this point. that is why they are trying to get other countries to do more. especially in the way of taking in more refugees coming to europe. >> trying to get countries to do more. you see the difference was austria and germany. welcoming and hungary building a wall. fred, thank you for that. we'll be right back.
secretary of state. the kentucky clerk in jail for refusing to issue wedding licenses to gay couples making a new appeal and getting high profile support. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm alison kosik. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. joe biden is signaling he is ready to run. whether he decides to jump into the race is another question. the vice president radiated as he marched in the labor day parade in pittsburgh. senior correspondent brianna keilar is there with the latest. >> reporter: good morning, john and alison. as democratic and republican presidential candidates fanned out across key early states, it was vice president biden in pittsburgh who really raised eyebrows. he gave a fiery speech to union
